QUALIFICATION BADGES / 75th Anniversary of the Airborne - Jump Wings
« Last post by lewis505 on February 21, 2018, 05:12:35 PM »
Lads-

One of the cooler pieces I've been given in a long time; my good friend SFC(R) Luke Keating is the Senior Instructor/Writer at Headquarters, 1-507th PIR, United States Army Airborne School here at Benning; for the 75th Anniversary of the Test Platoon's 1st Jump here at Benning on 16 August 1940, Luke went & had 507 sets of serial numbered pin back wings that he & the Battalion Command Team could present to deserving Paratroopers; 2 weeks ago, he gave me set #441

ADVERSARY ARTIFACTS / Re: A very odd windfall, WWI German helmet

Wow, what a scrooge! Just goes to show you that karma is a bit*h. Sad, because at the end of the day, he still netted a $400 profit, but certainly a win for you, and one day the museum.

What was his reaction when you showed him what these were selling for?

   To say it was worth the $400.00 should adequately describe his reaction  ;D
 There was a good bit of yammering and but but but... The best was one of the other Trustee's said if after I bought it he would  offer me $1500.00 right in front of the seller. Not sure if he would have, but he felt the same way we all did.   Scott
